::State Secretary Franz Morak flees from Public Netbase t0

On Thursday, 9 November, 2000, following the parliamentary debate of the 2001 national art budget, a small delegation of the Vienna-based Net Art institution Public Netbase t0 tried to hand over an open letter to Austrian State Secretary for Art, Franz Morak. The open letter, addressed to the Austrian public and signed by personalities from media, art, culture and science had attracted a thousand signatures within only a few days.

One more time, though, Public Netbase t0 had to learn that members of the Austrian Federal Government turn their back on the requirements of a future-oriented technology base for art and culture: The State Secretary responsible for art and media matters simply resorted to flight.
